Chain O’ Lakes Correctional Facility and Warden Charles Bowen are pleased to announce the graduation of 20 residents from a nationally recognized welding program.
Last Thursday, August 15th, Chain O’ Lakes Correctional Facility joined its partner, Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne campus, to celebrate the graduating class of 20 male offenders who have earned their nationally recognized American Welding Society (AWS) certifications.
Warden Bowen addressed the graduates commending their class' 100% passing rate for the course. "Keep this momentum going and you can achieve great things for you and your family."
Each student who qualifies for the welding course is placed into a work release program and has an opportunity to start their career with local employers while remaining incarcerated. The ultimate goal is to maintain continuous employment upon release.
